I been watching and learning

I been having a hard time getting back up

after life gave me a beating

now I don't know

with what it's worth

is that resume button

going to stop the hurting

 

I been seeing people live there happies days

whle i'm over here hearin that it's all a choice

you just have to tune out the the depressing noise

yet it's easirer said then done

Somedays I just want to run

Somedays I just want to burn in the sun

 

I been watching

I been learning

who would I be

when I stop putting others before me

who would I be

when happieness hits me

who would I be

when these chains come off of me

 

It's alwas been rainy days

and the earth decays

watch where you step cause life always finds a way

the acid cancer

is another factor

as everybody gathers

and the loners scatter

 

I learned love is a weapon

hate is another

a uinversal language which eventually sorts to violence

riots

at the end it's quiet

 

the reason it all begun was brocken trust

loners dont interact because they don't know

whats to come

if they relive the same cause of there troubles

which was,

love

    THIS! When you open yourself up to love, you up yourself up to be hurt. Pain comes from love, most times. I also love these lines too: "who would I be, when I stop putting others before me, who would I be" My life. I just recently understood this about me, and learned that it's okay to be "selfish." Put yourself first. What you have overflowing, you can give, but if you're not fully fulfilled within self, not sacrifice your well-being to give what you don't have. Iyanla Vanzant said something similar to that before, which helped me learn. Great poem.
